Just caught this….  Clear is shutting down tonight at 11pm Pacific time.  Details here.

Edited to add:  Here’s a link to Clear’s website.  Very little info other than a statement that they were unable to negotiate an agreement with their senior creditor.  In other words, they ran out of money.  I’ll have an editorial on the demise of Clear very soon.  In the meantime, I recommend calling your credit card company and contesting the annual fee, especially if you joined or renewed relatively recently.  The worst thing that can happen is you’re stuck with the bill.
